Energy optimised compressors from Danfoss

The SC-CNX.2 is the second-generation compressor series using propane as the green solution for the refrigerant. It features an even better energy efficiency than previous models or competitive products, and is particularly designed for light commercial applications.

The next generation of SC-CNX.2 compressors has arrived with an extended programme that offers a higher cooling capacity, especially at low and very low evaporating temperatures (between -30°C and -40°C). Danfoss’ compressor models are tailored for light commercial applications such as storage rooms, display freezer, commercial freezers and refrigerators as well as shelf ice machines, to name just a few.

The SC-CNX.2 series saves significantly more energy due to smaller displacements or compressor dimensions and the COP improvement further lowers the operational costs. At the same time, Danfoss manages to keep its well-known high product quality, which makes the product robust and reliable even under very rough operation conditions. The innovative compressor technology keeps the level of noise low, while the small and compact start equipment ensures a simplified installation.

Basic Specifications SC-CNX.2 series:
  • Refrigerant: R290
  • Evaporating temperature range: from -40°C to -10°C (50 Hz)
  • Voltage range: 198 – 254 V / 50 Hz
